I don't buy normally by organic either, unless it is on sale for cheaper than the non organic variety.

Ew, Lean Cuisine :P. I haven't had a microwave meal in years... though I occasionally see a Hot Pocket in the freezer from my husbands shopping. But being just the two of us, we eat more chicken and fish than anything. And a smaller freezer. By the time I have all the frozen fruit for smoothies in there, and the chicken and fish, there's not that much room left. The downside of apartment living! When we lived in Florida and owned our own house that had the side by side fridge, PLUS the freezer in the garage, it was a no brainer.

I do not have a Costco membership, but about once a year I tag along with a friend and purchase a 2# bag of yeast.

We used to live 2 miles from a Costco and loved it. Now we don't have one nearby, actually have to drive 2 hours, so only make a trip every two months and buy the following;
Kirkland Brand Toilet Paper
Kirkland Brand Paper Towels
Kirkland Organic Strawberry Spread
Kirkland Unsalted Mix Nuts
Kirkland Premium Chunk Canned Chicken Breast
Kirkland Macadamia Clusters
Boneless, skinless chicken thighs (5 in each packet)
London Broil (2 to a package)
Kirkland Brand Pacific Bold coffee
Garden gloves
Recently bought water shoes/sneakers for $20

We love Costco and keep hoping they will open one closer.

COSTCO is my church. If I don't worship at least once every couple of weeks , I start feeling faint.

To whoever was snarking about the quality of goods sold at COSTCO, you've apparently never shopped there.

+1 for fruit smoothies! Maybe you could split some occasional meats with friends, kind of a Costco Meat Co-op...

LOL same here... BJs by me are a lot easier for whatever reason, and I can get almost the same stuff.
